Navy Linen Blend Double-Breasted Suit

shipping calculated at checkout.
A Navy linen suit is without question an incredibly versatile item in any wardrobe. The Navy Linen we have used is such a beautiful cloth, we had to bring it to life a total of thrice.

This double-breasted version projects a more nostalgic aesthetic, especially when paired with the Hollywood top trousers. For those that prefer a more contemporary look or prefer a wider leg without belt loops, mix and match with the Heritage or Contemporary trouser to best suit you.

Each suit is cut and styled slightly differently, allowing for a broad spectrum of styling options. All of which benefit from the rich Navy fabric: almost silk-like in appearance, exploiting both the texture and coolness of linen, with the benefit of woven in wool to assist in crease prevention. This suit is also available double breasted or with a notch lapel.

Jacket Block

This shapely approach to tailoring also filters through to our double-breasted models, which come in two complementary styles. Perhaps our best-known cut is the timeless Signature Double-Breasted jacket, which has four buttons to fasten and two ‘show buttons’ on the chest. A personal favourite of Edward’s, double-breasted jackets like this lend stature and a touch of authority to the wearer, but can nonetheless still create a playful impression in bold colours, soft textures.

Trouser Description

A Sexton staple, Hollywood trousers feel modern and clean, but carry a touch of 1930s Sexton nostalgia. Made with a structureless grown on waistband and dropped belt-loops, they sit high on the waist and remain comfortable to wear.

Wear as a standalone piece with an open collar shirt or Tee for a cool and casual retrogressive look. Alternativley; pair with the Double-Breasted jacket of the same cloth to complete the retro vibe - or indeed match with any one of the three jackets made in matching Navy linen blend to customise the suit to your taste.

Trouser Details

• Grown on waistband with belt 1 1/4” belt loops
• Two forward pleats
• Jetted slant side pockets
• Double jet hip pocket on the right with flap hole and button

• Inlay to let out the waist up to 2"
Inlay to let out the fork 1”
• 2" of inlay in the hem to lengthen the trousers.

Trouser Block

Our pièces de résistance, though, are our Hollywood Trousers, which are cut with an unstructured, soft waistband and belt loops. These are inspired by a particular kind of ‘leisure trouser’ that was popular in the 1940s and ‘50s, designed to be wonderfully comfortable and free-flowing. In flannel, corduroy or smooth gabardine, they’re as sophisticated as trousers can be, and well-suited to creative dressers or clients in search of something chic to wear on the weekends.
